Fall 2007 

The new school year has begun and the Grizzly 
Staff members have been hard at work trying to give you 
stories about students and Butler Community College. 

Our staff is young, new, and fresh. For some it is 
their first issue they have ever published. Which also 
means some are learning the ways of magazine pro- 
grams and rules, so please bear with us as we grow to 
improve our magazine. 

The Grizzly Magazine staff thanks you for your

Butler Community College 






Students sit inside their class- 
room listening intently to their instructor, 
when all of a sudden it sounds as 
though a bulldozer is going to break 
down the walls. The sound of construc- 
tion equipment can be heard throughout 
the day of the 5000 building in Andover. 

The Andover campus of Butler 
Community College is renovating the 
building to better suite the lifestyle and 
needs of the students. A new student 
union was proposed for the Andover 
campus after student input. Surveys 
were handed to all students enrolled at 

The Student Union is to include 
plenty of seating, food, and a great 
atmosphere for student one on one 

The planned construction date to 
be completed is 2008.

1 . Turkey is good for you, so take the left- 
overs and make a sandwich with lettuce, tomato 
and also try using a low-fat mayo. 

Then for dinner you can use the turkey 
again. Try slicing up the turkey and pairing it with 
whole grain rice and steamed vegetables. 

2. Dishes that you should avoid are the 
casseroles. If it is filling then you should proba- 
bly avoid eating it or eat smaller portions. 

3. Try eating a healthy breakfast and eat 
at your "big meal." This way you don't overeat. 
Also try to eat all three meals. 


The Grizzly Fall 2007 

4. When you have choices, learn to pick the 
better of the choices. Say you have chips and 
salsa and chips and dip. You should choose 
the chips and salsa. Other things that you can 
try are whole wheat crackers or vegetables. 

6. Triptophan really makes you tired after eating turkey, 
so get motivated and go shopping or out to the back 
yard and play football with the family. 

5. Don't stress over losing weight. Just try and 
maintain the weight you are at. Try to stay 
stress free as well. 

7. Make sure that you eat all of your vegetables over 
the holidays.

rur a«ige pets, like dogs and cats, have 
been human companions for centuries. For example, 
the wolves that hunted with the cavemen, or the m 
felines that were just as important as Cleopatra hem 
self, it's no question that they have always been 
there for us. 

When we think of a dog, we think of loyalt 
and companionship. No matter what, your loving 
pooch will always be by your side and will alwayi 

mess of things, so whe n asked what they 
like to get into, Masiofchad this to say: 

"They're very sneaky aMget into every- 
thing. They tear up toiieRaper, they get 
into trash cans, they even climb up in the 
oven." f^" 

Although you can train ferrets to act

always there waiting at the door when you get home 
from school. 

When we think of a cat, it's an entirely differ- 
ent story; we think of a big, fat, fur ball that does 
nothing but lie around and sleep all the time. 
Occasionally she might jump on the bed while you're 
sleeping and tickle your nose with her whiskers, or 
otherwise she's clawing away at your new wallpaper, 
but something about her keeps you from getting 
mad... maybe it's thosebic^lue eyes looking back up 
atvpu.. or maybe it's her way of asking for a new 
scratch post. I 

We could all agree thatfhe canine and feline 
are probably some of the most popular pets you see 
in ho^s today but that has surely changed over the 
years. Keisha Masion, El Dorado fresman, has had 
her two ferrets Angel and Bandii for about a year 
now. "My ferrets were both born around December. I 
got Angel first and when I brougBhome Bandit obvi- 
ously he was smaller than her sMhe would beat him 
up all lie time, but now that he's older it's the other 
way aSund"Bhe»ays. ■he reason I named him 
Bandit wasnf because W the black around his eyes, 
but because when l^^him home, the first thing he 
did was steal my car keys!" Masion says she cleans 
the cage twice a week and changes the litter every 
day to keep the apartment odor free. 

The word ferret means hunt or search. It's a 
natural instinct for them to rummage and make a 

Mark Brown, El Dorado sophomore, whose 
family has had their toy poodle for close to 
six years. "His name is Beau, but we all call 
him Beau Beau", BrowrWays. Everyone, 
meaning him and his family, although 
Brown is now moved out of his parents' 
home. Beau likes to come and visit every 
now and then. "He likes to get into the trash 
all the time; I'm surprised he's not tearing 
stuff up already." Brown lives with another 
roommate. They both work full-time and 
Brown is also a full-time student at Butler, 
so there's not much time for cleaning. 

When he's not sleeping and being 
lazy, Beau likes to perform tricks like 
"speak" and "shake," "but only if I have food 
in my hand," Brown says. Other than regu- 
lar eating and treats, food also acts as a 
soother for Beau. "Sometimes when he 
gets real excited, he starts coughing real 
bad. My mom told me to give him a little bit 
of ice cream to help calm him down." 

When people decide to take on the 
responsibility of getting a pet, somewhere 
along the line it becomes more than that. 
The pet becomes a part of the family and a 
special bond is created, but sometimes an 
unexpected event happens that could force 
you to make a very hard decision. "Before 
we had Beau, we had another ^odle 
named Archie. We had to put hirldown

two of his legs." VBien nil famy lorn, him to the vet

sophomore^and her family's part chow, part golden 
retriever \m named Max "We found him on a dirt 
road out fly Clearwater It was obvious someone did- 
n't want Iwi and just dropped him off. When we 
found him he climbed right up in tht^^ick like he 
belonged there. It was like he found us, we didn't find 
him," Weaver says. 

The Weaver family used to live on an 80 acre 
piece of land complete with their own private pond 

that was fished at daily. "The kids would go 
fishing all the time and Max would go with 
them. He loved to swim. He also loved eat- 
ing the stink bait when nobody was look- 
ing," Weaver says. "He would also eat the 
marshmallows that the kids would take with 
them down to the pond." 

Max was already full grown when 
the Weaver family found him, then he was 
a part of their family for another 15 years, 
so it's safe to say that his second chance at 
life was well spent. Altho^yi he did go deaf

Butler Community College 

One of the major 
differences in a stu- 
dent's life in college is 
their living conditions. 
No longer are they 
watched by mommy 
and daddy or bothered 
by their siblings. "Home 
Sweet Home" is now 
college campus. 

Here at Butler 
Community College 
there are a variety of liv- 
ing arrangements. They 
have the West dorms 
for males only, 
Cummins for females 
only, East dorms for both 
male and female and the 
apartments on campus 
for females on scholar- 

"I live here on 
campus in the apart- 
ments. I enjoy it so much 
because I like the envi- 
ronment and the people I 
live with," says Danielle 
Kendrick, Caldwell fresh- 

The apartments 
include 4 two-person 
rooms, 2 bathrooms, a 
kitchen and a lounging 

Scrunched and cozy. People in the West dorms have the smallest rooms on 


"The apartments 
come with so many ben- 
eficial things that I feel so 
lucky to have the oppor- 
tunity to live in them," 
Kendrick says. 

The East and 
West dorms are very typ- 
ical type dorm rooms. 
They both include dou- 
ble-occupancy, with 
desks, closets and 
dressers for each stu- 
dent. The only major dif- 
ference between the two 
is the bathroom areas, 

with the East having a 
more private setup. 

"I live here in the 
West dorms and just 
knowing that lots of guys 
have slept in my bed 
before me bothers me. I 
miss my bed back home, 
and my room that was 
actually spacious," Chris 
Campa, Orlando, Fla. 
sophomore, says. "All my 
homeboys are in one 
area though so I don't 
mind it too much."

the Butler campus. 

Hall features many of the 
same things East and 
West do, just in a more 
spacious and convenient 
means. The rooms house 
two students to each 
room with a conjoining 
bathroom to another 
room. Also in Cummins 
there are some rooms 
that occupy three 
females to one room, 
making it even more suit- 
able for some. 

"The Cummins 
Hall has really nice dorm 
rooms and I enjoy it here 
a lot. I've made lots of 
good friends staying here 
and I wouldn't have it any 
other way," Bailey 
Anderson, Atchinson 
freshman, says. 

Going to college 
means more experi- 
ences. It's making new 
friends, growing up and 
learning to live on your 
own. By living on cam- 
pus, one gets those 
experiences hands-on, 
hopefully making it their 
own, "Home Sweet

Students at college need to be constantly 
aware of the people around them. However, some do 
not always realize they should also be aware of the 
illnesses that are around them too. The importance 
of receiving the necessary shots and vaccinations 
before moving into a residence hall at a college 
should be stressed more. 

There are many high risk illnekes that you 
can get through simply touching a dosmandle, shar- 
ing drinks or utensils with each other. t)n«pf the 
most devastating infections is the menirigckccal dis- 

The Center for Disease Control an$ 
Prevention says the meningococcal disease is an 
infection of the fluid of a person's spinal cord and th< 
fluid that surrounds the brain. The menincAocca! 
disease infects about 2,600 people each yfar and 5 - 
10 percent of these people die, even if thev^ have 
been treated with the proper antibiotics. The other 11 
to 1 9 percent lose limbs, become deaf, suffer from 
seizures or become mentally retarded The symp- 
toms of this infection are similar to that of the flu; 
they include high fever, nausea, vomiting, 
headaches, stiff necks, confusion and sleepiness. 
The infection is very serious, if anyone contracts it 

To avoid contracting this disease, students 
should get the meningitis vaccine. A vaccine can be 
found at any doctor's office or health facility. It is 
highly recommended that college freshmen receive 
this vaccine, but it is available to anyone of any age. 
There are two different types of the vaccine. They 
are both 90 percent effective. However, one is used 
more. It is the higher recommended of the two 
because it lasts longer, according to keepkid- 

Although you do not hear much about this 
disease actually affecting someone, it has. One such 
case involved a young college woman just like many 
of the students here at Butler. In an article on, this disease nearly took the life of one 


The Grizzly Fall 2007 

young woman in Indiana. She thought it was just 
a flu bug and that it would pass in a couple of 
days, but it turned out to be the meningitis infec- 
tion. She was rushed to the hospital and treated 
for the infection once they found out what was 
wrong with her. Today she has had multiple sur- 
geries and three fingers and a foot amputated. 
She is now trying to figure out J|ow to cope with 
the way her life is after this honlple disease. 

Janece English, Director of Residence 
Living, saysj^g^jgh there is a%tate law now 

vaccBe be receivedtoy all incoming 
students hling in the dorms* there is a 
waiver that c in be signed so you do.not have to 
get this shot." 

The waiver simply states that you have a 
medical or personal reason why you do not want 
to receive the vaccination. 

"Out of all the students that live in the 
jdorms, only two or three signed a waiver to not 
receive the vaccine," English says 

Sure, that means there are fewer chance 
but it is still something to be aware of. The staff is 
not required t(htoceive the vaccine, but it is a 
topic of discus^gn^hat could be required in the 

So why get the shot if everyone around 
you is vaccinated? It Bfri| jgtone as a precai 
tion to maintain your health i'Rutbermore, it is 
never certain if someone 
not. It is required that all Butler 
the dorms receive this vaccination s

with all shots, patients should be aware 
but possible side effects. These include, fever, 
hives, asthma and anaphylaxis (the acute sys- 
temic and severe Type I Hypersensitivity allergic 
reaction). For Butler students they can go to the 
student health department located in the west do 
mitory. The vaccine ranges from $10 to $30. 

Ouch that hurts. Laura Coon, 
Registered Nurse for Butler 
College Health, assists Bo Tucker, 
Eureka freshman, receive the 
proper vaccinations before the 
start of the school year. 

Get your vaccinations here. 

The Student Health Center is 
located at the West dorms.

Mission Statement 

The Safety/Security Committee, composed of representatives from each department, shall 
serve as a visible measure of the college's commitment to a safety program. The committee's 
purpose is to create a safer working environment through maintaining a higher level of safe- 
ty awareness at all employment levels of the college. The objectives of the safety committee 
shall be to: 

• Make SAFETY AWARENESS an integral part of the employee 
orientation program 

• Review accident investigation reports and workers compensation forms to 
identify accident trends and to lower incident levels by developing 
preventive measures 

• Promote safety awareness by implementing safety programs and working 
closely with supervisory persons to obtain their input.

With all the violence in our world today 
and the stories in the news, it is tough to feel 
safe. Even places that appear to be harmless 
can be dangerous. At your school you should 
feel safe, and Campus Security is making 
some changes to ensure the safety of students 
and faculty at Butler Community College. 

Marshall Matthews is the Director of 
Campus Safety and Security at Butler 
Community College. He started working at 
Butler in August, but worked for 20 years in law 
enforcement with various departments. During 
that time he worked assignments involving 
investigations, Tactical Emergency Response, 
Rescue and Recovery Dive Team, Community 
Policing, DARE Instructor, and Training and 
Planning. For the last several years he has 
even provided personal security for Delbert 
McClinton, the Grammy Award winning record- 
ing artist, and Harrison Ford, the actor, along 
with several others. 

"The safety of the students is a huge 
priority for us. Also the environment of violence 
and danger that our society is part of in the 
21st century forces us to make these changes," 
says Matthews. 

The first change that has been made is 
not a physical one. They are trying to change 
attitudes and motivate everyone, even stu- 
dents, to be a part of security. They want stu- 
dents and faculty to come to them if they see a 
problem or if they have any ideas. 

They also have a new program called 
Connect-Ed which is an electronic notification 

system. This will notify everyone of a critical 
incident by cell phone, text messaging, and e- 
mail within minutes. They will be putting phone 
numbers and e-mail addresses into the 
Connect-Ed system and it will notify everyone 

Also, before the end of the semester, 
Campus Security is going to stage a critical inci- 
dent drill. This will help them to evaluate their 
new plans by seeing how well they respond and 
how quickly and effectively they can contact 
EMS, the fire department and police. 

Right now there are emergency phones 
in the dorms. Campus Security is planning to 
put up more emergency phones all around the 
campus. They also will be increasing the num- 
ber of people patrolling the campus. 

The Emergency Operations Plan was 
recently refined, and all involved received train- 
ing to gain more knowledge on how to carry it 
out. There are also a few other security changes 
being made, but are not being made public to 
ensure safety. 

"My ambition at Butler Community 
College is to help provide the most safe and 
secure environment for the campus population 
as possible. I would like to be part of the college 
visionary process. I would like to encourage all 
college stakeholders to play an active role in the 
safety and security of our college," says 

A student should be able to go to school 
and focus on the class, not on the fact that they 
do not feel safe. Safety is a basic need and 
Campus Security is working hard to improve

Greece was under a countrywide state of 
emergency. More than 170 wildfires swept 
through the country, causing it to rain down 
ash on the capital, Athens. 

The fire claimed more than 63 lives, and 
lasted from late August to early September. The 
smoke from the intense fire could be seen from 
space as NASA has photos Of it. This blaze is 
responsible for destroying over 500 homes. 
According to the European Union, 454,447 
acres of forest, orchards and scrublands were 

Major damage was done to the 
Peloponnese region of southern Greece, an 
olive producing part of the country. This will 
cause major harm to the local economy for 
some time to come. It is estimated that it will 
take up to five years to recover and produce a 
full olive crop again. The damage created by 
the fires has inevitably raised fear that it could 
prevent tourists from visiting Greece, futher 
damaging the local economy. 

Greece was one of the earliest civiliza- 
tions; it has many ancient ruins, some over 
4,000 years old. Greece also has many historic 
medieval churches. These sites are what 
makes Greece a very popular tourist area. This 
is why it was so important to keep the fire from 
historical sites. Many were nearly burnt down 
from the wildfires that were spreading across 
the nation. The blaze torched the edges of the 
Athens stadium, but MSNBC says the archaeo- 
logical treasure survived. Even though the sta- 
dium is constructed completely of rock and 
can't burn, the heat from the fire would even- 
tually cause the aged rock to chemically fall 

CNN says nearly 80 people have bee*n 
detained on suspicion of arson. So far seven 
have been charged. The arsonists behind this 
are thought to have started the fires so that 
they could claim land that had been set aside

arson was the cause , saying that it "cannot be a 
coincidence" that so many fires started at the 
same time. | 

If you are wondering how this could possi- 
bly affect you there is an answer, global warming. 
There have been 170 major forest fires this year 
in Greece alone, compared with just 52 in 2006. 
This has raised major concern about global 
warming. "Global emissions from the deforesta- 
tions and the degradation of forest are the sec- 
ond single source after coal," says Stefan Singer 
orld Wildlife Fund. 
With the amount of trees that burned 
osted the fear that without 
thousands of our natural filters that more carbon 
dioxide w ill cause the temperature to rise, hence 
global warming. When trees are burned down 
they take decades* to re-grow. That may not seem

"Once on this Island" is a story told 
through song and dance. A story of love and 
betrayal. A young village woman named Ti 
Moune, Kacey Armbruster, is put through a 
series of tests to prove her love for a rich 
man, Daniel, Garrett Robinson. The gods set 
a series of tasks before her. She had to 
choose between life and death. 

The tale is told by a group of story- 
tellers. The storytellers are, Donnie 
Chauncey, Kate Games, Seth Hatfield, Odie 
Brown, Karen Harpenau, Morgan Hebbert, 
John O'Brien, Mindy Ramski, Chris Williams 
and Kayla Winn. 

The God of Water, Agwe, portrayed by 
Mason Holmes, made a storm, which she had 
to choose between going to safety, and stay- 
ing with the injured Daniel. 

The Demon of Death, Papa Ge, por- 
trayed by Chance Gates, gave her a task 
where she in the end had to choose between 
life and death. 

Asaka, Mother of the Earth, guided Ti 
Moune's way through the countryside, on the 
way to Daniel's home. Erzulie, the goddess of 
love, Lauren Rust, shows her the meaning of 
true love, during trials of life. 

During the journey Ti Moune remem- 
bered advice given to her by her foster par- 
ents, Mama Euralie, portrayed by Kristi 
Mason, Tonton Julian, portrayed by Joe Fine, 
and Young Ti Moune, Stevie Mack.

Bernie Wonsetler. Musical Direction by Valerie

A person may not realize how 
much education is required in order to 
listen to our favorite music. 

Butler Community College has 
one of the biggest instrumental music 
programs. You may think you that you 
don't care, yet you listen to music 
every day. 

The Sideliners Pep Band plays 
at all of the home basketball games 
and football games. The pep band 
has around 25+ students. These stu- 
dents work really hard to play well. 
They are directed by Mr. John 
Templin and Mr. Kevin Pickeral. 
Together, they teach how to have fun 

and yet work really hard. 

"The experience in pep band is 
high in energy," says Christine Logue, 
Augusta sophomore. 

"I enjoy going to all the games 
and seeing people dance to the 
music," says Emma Rupke, Prairie 
View Freshman. 

"It's fun and it adds energy to 
the crowd. It pumps up the energy 
level," says Kory Alexander, Scott City 

The Show Band plays at all 
the band concerts, and usually fea- 
tures one or two guest performers. 
These guest performers play with a 
group of students, directed by Mr. 
Roger Lewis. 

"Show Band is fun because it's 
music that the audience usually 
knows and it's really rewarding when 
they are enjoying themselves," says 
Susan Ault, Kingman sophomore. 

The Jazz Band plays mainly at the band 
concerts, and also play at some other col- 
leges. They include the following instru- 
ments: Saxophones, Trumpets, 
Trombones, Bass, Keyboard and 
Percussion. Together they form a unique 
sound. This band is directed by Lewis. 

"Jazz Band is a lot of fun. I have 
always enjoyed playing jazz," says Susan 
Ault, Kingman sophomore. 

The Concert Band plays only at the 
concerts, hence the name. Directed by 
Lewis, there are about 50+ students. They 
play a lot of different pieces of music. 

"Being in concert band is fun. There 
are a lot of cool kids, and we play a lot of 
fun music," says Renee Beat, Augusta 

"Concert Band is amazing!!! I love 
the different types of music we play," says 
Susan Ault, Kingman sophomore. 

Studying. Tyffany Wiley, Emporia freshman, tries to finish up 
some homework during the dress rehearsal for the band concert.

Graphic Design is a career for the 
future. If you are creative and are good at 
computer programs, then this is a good 
choice for you. It is the process of commu- 
nicating visually using text and images to 
present information. There are many differ- 
ent uses of graphic design. 

In administration, graphic design is 
used to create road signs and reference 
manuals. Your car handbooks and intruc- 
tional manuals were all designed by graphic 
designers. In advertising, they have a 
unique ability to sell a product or idea 
through effective visual communication. It is 
applied to products as well as the company 
identity. In education, it is used to design 
textbooks and to demonstrate theories and 
diagrams. From decoration and scenery, to 
visual storytelling, graphic design is applied 
to entertainment. From cover to cover of 
novels to the opening and closing credits in 
movies, graphic design helps set the 
intended mood. Newspapers, magazines 
and movies may use graphic design to 
inform and entertain. 

Graphic designers have been 
involved in web design for many years. 
"I'm stuck between magazine advertising 
and web design. It would be interesting to 
make advertisements and have an effect on 
the reader," says Jenny Guhrke, Newton 
freshman. Graphic designers often work 
with web designers to create both the look 
and feel for a certain website. 

Along with many types of graphic 
design, there are many different classes to 
take. A Fine Arts major would have to take 
Studio Art, Principles of Design, 
Computerized Design, Commercial 
Graphics Production and Web Design. A 
Liberal Arts Major takes basic courses such 
as: Art History, Psychology, Foreign 
Language and Cultural classes along with a 
few Design classes. Marketing and 
Business classes would be heplful with 
either major. 

Employment for Graphic Designers 
is expected to grow because of the demand 
from advertisers, publishers and computer 
design firms. Individuals with a bachelor's 
degree and knowledge of computer design 
software, particularly those with web site 
design experience, will have the best 

The average earning for a graphic 
designer is $40,000 a year. If you work for 
an advertising firm as a specialized design- 
er, the potential income is $42,000 a year. 
CD label, book cover or Web designers 
earn between $40,000 to $50,000 a year. 

There are many related occupations 
to Graphic Design. Other occupations in 
design include: commercial and industrial, 
fashion, floral and interior design.

Look at those girls 
go! Skating fast and scor- 
ing points. Back in 2006 
the Wichita Roller Derby 
began. They now have three 
teams: Split Lip Sallies, I C 
Teasers and the Plane Janes. 
They have practices and bouts at 
Roller City in Wichita. 

These girls come from all 
walks of life and backgrounds from 
school teachers to tattoo artists. 

There are three different 
positions to play. You have the 
jammers who score all the points; 
blockers; well, that name says it 
all; then you have the pivots that 
set the speed of the pack. 

Jessica Henderson, also 
known as "Supa FN," is a blocker 
for the I C Teasers. She really 
likes roller derby because it is an 
acceptable way for her to deal 
with and let out her aggression. 

Roller derby has definitely 
changed her life for the better. 
Henderson says she has a lot 
more confidence and better self- 
esteem. Plus Henderson says she 
is in the best shape of her life. 

Henderson went to Butler 
and majored in criminal justice. 
She graduated in May 2006. She 
continued at Butler for another 
year and is now working on get- 

"Roller derby 
has certainly 
changed my 
life for the bet- 
ter,"says Supa 

ting certified in addiction coun- 
seling. She attended the 
Andover campus and took a lot 
of online classes. 

To go and watch a roller 
derby bout is fun and exciting all 
at the same time. It was intense 
and nail-biting just waiting to see if 
any of these girls were going to 
duke it out. They, however, played 
a clean game. The Split Lip Sallies 
won the bout. But the Teasers put 
up a heck of an effort. 

If by chance you are want- 
ing to join the ICT roller girls, you 
can. They have newbie night that 
is currently being held on 
Wednesdays from 8:30 - 10 p.m. 
at Roller City on 31st and

you can contact any roller girl on
